Salman Khan is back on television with the 12th season of Bigg Boss. And, right from its first episode, the controversial show has already got the viewers talking. Popular devotional singer Anup Jalota has entered the show as a 'vichitra jodi', with his girlfriend Jasleen Matharu, who is 37 years younger than him. This is the first time that the two have acknowledged their relationship.
As soon as it was announced that the 65-year-old has brought his girlfriend to the show, even host Salman couldn't hide his disbelief. Soon enough, fans started airing their reactions on social media.
Take a look at some of the reactions.
Never underestimate a man who sings Bhajans. Or for that matter who’s only 65 years young. #AnupJalota— SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) September 16, 2018

Before entering the house, Jalota told PTI, "Everyone is not the same. There are problems in a family, these things do happen. I am so much involved in spiritual and classical music... I don't have anger left in my life. I love music, I love to sing. It will be interesting to see how it is going to be inside the house."
"When people would fight I will try to give solution. It is essential to understand that we often get angry because of someone else. I believe the solving problem is important," he added.
The singer also said that he will continue following his daily routine during his stay in the house. “I will do my riyaz, yoga, walk on the treadmill and I am glad that they have provided me with the facilities.”
With its mix of civilian and celebrity contestants, Bigg Boss 12 is definitely going to be a controversial ride yet again.
